Car Heater Blower Motor Doesn't Work

Question : I have a 2000 Honda Civic and My blower motor only works on high speed, what could be the cause of this???

Answer : This is an indication that the Blower motor Resistor has failed and needs to be replaced. If the blower motor did not function at all you would need to replace the motor . The resistor is located within 6" of the motor mounted inside the air box and can be removed externally. It is cooled by the air flow created by the blower motor.
